Reconstructive Plastic
Surgery Procedures

Restore & Complete for Function & Purpose.

Ear Lobe Reconstruction

Earlobe reconstruction is usually performed to restore the normal appearance of torn, damaged, or elongated earlobes as a result of trauma or ear piercings. Keloids causing large unsightly scars on the earlobe are another reason to pursue earlobe reconstruction. The specific reconstructive technique will depend on your particular earlobe deformity, but usually the procedure can be performed in the office and a complimentary ear piercing is provided at six to eight weeks after reconstruction.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the appearance of your earlobes, don’t hesitate to contact us at Biswas Plastic Surgery to schedule a consultation.

Scar Revision

All incisions or wounds will result in a scar. They are an inevitable consequence of injury or surgery, and their formation may be somewhat unpredictable. For example, the scar may heal in a way that is functionally or cosmetically impairing, or a scar may evolve into a keloid or a hypertrophic scar. Although a scar cannot be completely removed, the goal of scar revision would be to improve functional impairment or minimize cosmetic unpleasantness by creating a scar that has a softer texture and is more uniform with its surrounding skin.

If you have a scar that is concerning to you or if have questions regarding scar revision surgery, please contact us for a comprehensive scar evaluation.   

Skin Cancer & Mohs Reconstruction

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer with over 500,000 new cases reported each year. Skin cancers are the result of ultraviolet light from the sun as well as from artificial sources such as tanning salons. Anyone who has had skin cancer or precancerous skin lesions should be monitored closely. Routine skin evaluations can be given by your primary care doctor, a dermatologist, or a plastic surgeon. If a suspicious skin lesion is found, the skin lesion should be removed and sent for pathologic evaluation to determine what type of skin cancer it is. This can be done by a dermatologist or a plastic surgeon. If a dermatologist elects to perform Mohs surgery, you may be referred to plastic surgery to close the excision site created by the Mohs procedure.

If you have concerns about a suspicious skin lesion, contact us for a comprehensive skin evaluation.
